Instagram Spots in Notting Hill
The starting point for will be Ladbroke Grove underground station. From here, you just need to walk a few minutes to get to the famous colorful buildings in Lancaster Road.
Not far we will find our next stop: St. Luke’s Mews.
St. Luke’s Mews
St. Luke’s Mews is probably the prettiest street in London.
This quaint street is really beautiful thanks to a perfect recipe: pastel-colored mews, cobblestoned pavement, plants and vintage bikes.
You may or may not recognize 27 St. Luke’s Mews thanks to Love Actually. This pink pastel house is where Keira Knightley gets a silent and memorable love declaration.
It may look like a movie set but it’s an actual neighborhood. Keep this in mind when taking your photos and respect the local people.
The owners of the famous pink house don’t mind that people take photos in front of it, but they ask for a donation of 1£ per person to help the local homeless people – I loved the initiative!
If you’re looking for a special place to stay at during your trip to London, you can stay in one of these mews in Notting Hill.
Westbourne Park Road
Not far from St. Luke’s Mews you will find Westbourne Park Road with a few more pastel colored façades. You could spend the whole day taking photos here!
Quite close to Westbourne Park Road, you will find Colville Houses, a lovely dead end street with rows of beautiful buildings yet again, in pastel colors.
If you’re looking for a quiet place for pictures, go here!
Not far from Colville Houses, in Colville Terrae, you will find another collection of colorful buildings waiting for you and your camera.
Denbigh Terrace is another great spot for photos if you’re looking for pastel colors.
Despite being located right next to Portobello Road, it’s never as busy as its neighbor!
Alice’s at Portobello Road
Portobello Road is the most iconic antiques market in London. Make sure to get lost and visit as many shops as possible! The most famous one is Alice’s, selling antiques since 1887.
Really close to Portobello Road, Chepstow Villas are a collection of beautiful buildings with pastel facades.
If you’re looking for beautiful doors, then head to Stanley Gardens, a quiet street where you can stay if you want! Here’s where The Portobello Hotel is located.
Biscuiteers at Kensington Park Road
Continue this walking itinerary in Notting Hill around Kensington Park Road. There are so many beautiful white Georgian houses in this area.
Biscuiteers is a biscuit boutique & icing cafe that stands out from the rest for its façade in Notting Hill. Not only the building is pretty, they’re specialists in designing homemade cookies and cakes!
If you need a rest between photoshoots, go here.
The most famous pub in the area is Churchill Arms, a traditional British pub that is always filled with flowers and flags since 1750: get yourself a pint, you deserve it after a very busy day of photoshooting!
And here’s a fun fact: Churchill Arms is named after Churchill’s grandparents who frequented this place back in the day.
The pink flatiron building
There’s a new famous insta spot in Notting Hill: a pastel pink flatiron building located between Pottery Lane and Penzane Street. This is a very quiet area as it’s a bit far from the rest of the places from this list so consider if you have enough time to go.
One of the most photogenic places in Notting Hill is Hillgate Place and the surrounding area: it’s like a pastel colored rainbow!
This is the most popular spot of the list, so pack a bag of patience and remember to always respect the neighbors when taking your photos. I’d recommend you going on weekdays and in the morning, if possible.
This spot is located really close to Notting Hill Gate Underground Station, so after finishing this route in Notting Hill it’s very easy to continue exploring London!
